I'm trying to prepare my pre-schooler for school. When room opens up at the local ISD, she'll be able to start. She's a bright kid (not just saying that; I've been told by many others who've interacted with her) and I just want to make sure she's up to par with where the other kids are.
She has an extensive vocabulary for a girl her age (again, something other people are always telling me), she can count (in English and Spanish; thank you, Dora), as well as recognize colors and shapes. She plays matching games and which one doesn't belong here very well. I'm trying to teach her the alphabet and, eventually, spelling small words. I've been using www. starfall.com as a tool for this. It came highly recommended, but I'm wondering if there's something else she can do aside from that.
I'm not home with her enough during the week to work on it (I work 8-5 and her bed time is 8).
